Just like I remember

This cafe is reminiscent of the places we used to visit when I was a child. Good food, clean dining area, hometown atmosphere and hard working friendly staff.

I enjoy coming because the food is great just like the old time diners. I love meatloaf Wednesdays. My wife loves anytime breakfast. Across from Farmhouse restaurant. Great service and great food.

We had a wonderful meal of homemade fried chicken. Others in our party had chicken livers, one had ham and beans and the other eggs Benedict. We all REALLY liked our food. Service was very good. Prices were so reasonable - around $8 each. It's very small but we were served right away. One reviewer said it was the best... More

I like trying different places to eat when on a vacation. Stopped here for a quick bite to eat before shopping the little shops downtown. There were three of us, and we all ordered something different. Spaghetti, salad and garlic bread was a daily special I enjoyed. Mom enjoyed the daily special of catfish filets, coleslaw and hush puppies. My... More

We always try to find time to eat at the Branson Cafe when we are in Branson. A very quaint local establishment that has excellent home cooked food and the best waitresses around. Thevestablishment has been in Branson for many, many years. Prices are very reasonable and save room for their delicious, home made pie. A great place to eat... More

This place has a daily special. I especially like the meat loaf on Wednesday's. The cook throws in just about everything she can find and it's oh so good. Hard to find meat loaf on a menu, and even harder to find good meat loaf, so this place has it all. Other dishes are very good. My wife loves the... More

Wonderful location in old downtown area. Food was good and the waiter and chef were super nice and accommodating. We visit Branson 2-3 times a year and this was one of our best experiences yet.
